Special Agent Union Pacific Badge
Special Agent Union Pacific Railroad Badge - Quality Made
By 1860 there were 30,626 miles of railroad in the United States -- more than three times the mileage than existed just 10 years before. Theft was rampant and the losses in dollars of freight, parcels and luggage were overwhelming to the railroad companies. Railway companies, left to protect themselves, contracted railroad policemen. Two of the most famous Special Agents hired to protect the railroads were Bat Masterson and Allen Pinkerton.
